  • establishing a principal-coach partnership
  • enrolling teachers in coaching cycles
  • setting student-centered goals
  • collecting observational data and providing feedback
  • building trusting relationships
  • questioning and active listening
  • balancing roles through time management techniques
  • impacting instruction through data analysis
  • planning for reflection and growth

In addition, each participant will receive Cards for Coaching, a fun game of coaching scenarios and question stems created to foster dialogue and build a coach's toolbox to respond to any situation that comes their way!
